After many rehearsals, it is the first time they sing live on the Eurovision 2022 stage and it is always great emotion. The bookmakers put them in third third place, and that’s okay with them: “We only fear ourselves, the important thing is to do well”, they had said on the eve.
The two sang looking into each other’s eyes all the time, now they are friends, great friends. The foreign press in recent days has continually asked him the meaning of their passage. Among criticisms, those of the Spaniard El Mundo (“A homoerotic couple”), and the compliments of New York Times: «Their success is a positive sign of Italy’s change on LGBTQI + issues».
